Readings! Hooray for readings!

Thursday, June 23 (or, as some would have it, "tomorrow"), I will be participating in a reading for City Lit Theatre at the Whole Foods at 1000 W. North Ave. here in Chicago. It's part of the city's "Play With Your Food" festival, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the gastro-fest we call Taste of Chicago. They're planning food-related arts events all summer, and this is City Lit's. Me and three other extraordinarily talented actors reading three delightful stories--"Tender at the Bone" by Ruth Reichl, "Apple Pie 4th of July" by Linda S. Wong, and "An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving Dinner" by Louisa May Alcott--all for no damn cost whatsoever, at 7 pm Thursday.

Then, this Fri, Sat, Sun, City Lit winds down its own 25th Anniversary season with another reading-this time, four stories by Mark Twain. They're funny as hell. My partner in this undertaking is the lovely Jan Blixt. Fri-Sat at 8, Sun at 3, at City Lit Theatre, 1020 w. Bryn Mawr in Chicago. Tix are 10 bucks, I believe. Call (773)293-3682 for info or reservations.

Hope to see you here and there.
